I came up with this little gem last night, based on the grid
theme that i absolutly adore (thankyou Jacqueline ).
These adorable panels are from 'Dovecraft' and i have
prettied them up with Heroarts and Tapestry stamps!
A spellbinders fancy banner diecut decorated with little
pearl embellishments and of course we could'nt be
without my obligatory delicately coloured butterfly......
which is sort of my trademark.......I love everything
about this piece......Soooo happy with it !

Crimson beauties !

Hi guys, its 7.30am in the uk and its damp and overcast here today ! I felt like creating something Fiery and
dramatic today.....I feel sometimes that we do not use enough COLOUR ! I like subtle colours too but feel
 they are used too often because they are 'SAFE' !!
Anyway i used my beloved Hero arts butterfly stamps, a designer paper from my stash and a spellbinders die cut
'Fancy banner'. The flowers i have made  are punched out and watercoloured (so much nicer to use real water-
colours for flowers......I find that dye based ink, fades rather quickly and you soon loose the impact of colour and then you are back to 'WISHY WASHY PALE' COLOUR again !!
If you are creating a little masterpiece today, be bold and use COLOUR..........Have a lovely day all !!!
I will enter this card into the following challenges....

Good morning all, a beautiful morning here in the uk !
Husband's gone to play golf, Barbara Gray from clarity stamping is on telly for two hours demonstrating and i'm having a glorious lazy sunday......just bliss !!!

what emerged !! I moved out of my comfort zone with this one, I'm not normally a 
lacy frilly person but i think this worked out reasonably well! i dont know if i'm entirely happy with it.....maybe its something i should keep trying !!!

Hi, I'm sending a little sunshine to my friend Sue, from Auckland!
Appararently the weather is awful there at the moment..........
I've used an elusive images butterfly stamp, coloured with prisma
pencils. The scalloped edge background is inked and then white
embossed, this is particularly pretty and was one of many gifts sent to me from Sue
The second circular background was brayered with BIG AND JUICY inkpad
'HYDRANGEA'. Ornate corners, pearls and lace complete my ray of sunshine !!!
I hope the sun shines for you all today, be kind and show someone some lovexxx
